Default If my mac get spy spftware or not?

Have you guys heard of the keylogger? I can't login to my WOW account as it says wrong passwords. I suspect my mom has changed my passwords by using the keyloggers to get my previous login details. Once I saw her visiting this keylogger for mac webpage.(I'm a mac user.) She has complained to me many times that I spend too much time on the games. Is there any way to detect whether my computer gets the mac spy software? If it does, how can I delete it?

I think most every one here is going to say much the same thing. If your mother is in fact responsible, we are not going to help you go against your mother's wishes. She is trying to look out for your well being, and does not want you spend time gaming that should be being used for school studies, spending time with friends, or other social activities.

I agree entirely with Ritho. Why not discuss this openly with your mom, listen to her concerns and try to agree a mutually acceptable solution together?

She over-controls me, I think. More over, I'm 13 now.

Try this then. Without pulling each others hair out ask your mom if over the next week she can just make a note of the things you do which concern her and why. You should also make similar notes about what your mom says to you and why you think these might be over controlling. Then, next weekend you can sit down together and try to find some common ground. Try to avoid making comparisons with the parental relationships enjoyed by your friends because....

a) your circumstances won't ever be exactly the same as someone elses, and
b) often what your friends tell you won't be 100% accurate

Some parents are over protective and some kids underestimate their current abilities to deal with the world. This same issue has been around for generations but we all manage to live through it

Bluerose, even I'm old enough, I'd like to listen to what Dr. MidnightCowboy says.

I wish I had such good advice when I was 13 ....

I'm 54 now and I turned out pretty good (I think) despite lack of good advice.
